Flora Sue Jones Wells, age 88, passed away on Saturday, September 9, 2023 at The Oaks at Sweeten Creek.
Flora was part of a big family and was a daughter of Loren Jones, Sr. and Virgie Stamey Jones. She was also preceded in death by her dear husband of 53 years, Wilburn Benjamin Wells, Sr. who died in 2005; her sons, Allen Wells and Ben Wells, Jr.; two sisters, Tootsie and Meb; and four brothers, Loren, Jr., Booder, Roy, and Tommy Jones.
Flora had a satisfying 30-year career in the Buncombe County Schools as a cook. She relished her important role in feeding the youth of Enka High School and knowing she was contributing to their educational foundation. Creating a happy family and memories was of utmost importance to her and she thrived in her roles of loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and mother-in-law. As a devoted fan of Elvis, her family will always think of her and have a smile on their face when one of The King’s songs comes on the radio.
She is survived by her sons, Scotty Wells (Karina) and Rex Wells (Tracy); sister, Peggy Hensley; four grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
The family will be having a private graveside service.
The family would like to extend special thanks to the staff at The Oaks at Sweeten Creek for their exceptional care of Flora.
The care of Mrs. Wells has been entrusted to Wells Funeral Home of Canton and an online memorial register is available at "Obituaries" at www.wellsfuneralhome.com.
